Returns

Oh no! Something’s not right with your order? We are anxious to help.

Candy DeliveryPlease review our return policies below, for both internet and phone orders, to get answers to your questions.

Simple 1-2-3 steps for returns appear below.

In order to serve you most efficiently, we are unable to address issues regarding order discrepancies over the phone. 

All return inquiries should be addressed to support@candyfavorites.com and you will receive a response from us within one business day. 

The Supremely Important Things (please read):

Due to health and insurance regulations (bummer), we are unable to accept return merchandise or issue credit for orders returned without preauthorization (just send us an email to get started). All return merchandise must be sent back to us within 72 hours after verified receipt of delivery. 

To ensure quality control, all damage, discrepancy, or shortage claims must be reported within 24 hours of verified receipt of merchandise. Claims submitted after this period cannot be honored. Please note that we cannot issue credit for products damaged in transit unless you have purchased a protective thermo case and/or chosen expedited shipping. Call us if you ever have questions about shipping options. We’ll walk you through it.

Return merchandise, upon arrival at our warehouse, must be in the condition in which you received it. We leave it to the discretion of the purchaser to choose a return method that safeguards their product from temperature extremes.

All returns are subject to a 20% restocking fee. Read more about your specific situation in the following sections to see if this fee will apply to your transaction.

Can You Get a Refund?
(The Common-Sense-But-We-Still-Have-To-Say-It Section)

We are not able to issue credit for return merchandise that it is not resalable and/or for products with packaging that is not intact. 

It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure safe receipt of product as, unfortunately, we cannot take responsibility for orders lost due to theft regardless of whether or not a signature is required.

Colors and sizes may differ depending on computer or monitor settings and we are not able to issue credit in the event that a shade, size, or formula differs from the manufacturer's production specifications. It rarely happens, but we thought we should mention it.

We are not able to verify Kosher certification and rely strictly on manufacturers for accurate information. Please contact the manufacturer directly if you have specific questions or concerns. Manufacturer’s websites often contain information, too.

We reserve the right to repackage bulk merchandise and it may or may not arrive in original packaging bearing manufacturer markings. 

Need to Return Something? Let’s Do It:

 

Vintage Candy ReturnsStep 1: Email us at support@candyfavorites.com . We will send you a Return Authorization. 

Step 2: Upon receipt of Return Authorization (don’t send anything without getting this super-duper-important information first), please fill out the Return Authorization Form.  
 

Step 3: Clearly mark the box with the shipper's name and the original invoice number, and make sure to put your Return Authorization Form in the box. Merchandise returned without preauthorization cannot be credited and can be returned to recipient at customer's expense.

Say goodbye and mail your package to:

Still have questions? We have more answers!

The items below should address everything else. If not, contact us and we will get crackin’ on your case.

Cancellation and/or refusal of previously placed orders

Although we don’t know many people who would want to cancel an order of candy, if you wish to do so, send us a request via e-mail within 12 hours of order completion. We suggest that you send your email with a Read Receipt in order to ensure its delivery. In the event that an order is cancelled more than 12 hours after it has been placed, the purchaser will be responsible for a 20% restocking fee. 

Note that we are not able to accept order cancellations by phone. 

If you have chosen overnight delivery, your order will ship the day it is placed unless it is received after 4:00 p.m. EST, in which case it will ship the following business day.

Expedited orders placed over the weekend will ship the following Monday. Due to the nature of Expedited Delivery, once an overnight order has been processed, it cannot be cancelled.

If the order is en route and delivery is refused, you will be responsible for shipping costs as well as the cost of return service. If the order qualified for Free Delivery, you will be credited the cost of merchandise, less the 20% restocking fee, less the actual cost of shipping, to and from, as determined by CandyFavorites.com.

Damage (or “What's the matter with my candy?”)

Alas, we cannot issue a refund or replacement for products damaged in transit due to extremes in temperature.

If you receive a product in unusable condition for reasons other than temperature extremes, submit a claim (just send us an email) within 24 hours of verified physical receipt as indicated by UPS. We will not be able to issue credits or refunds for claims submitted after 24 hours.

Incorrect addresses

If an order is unable to be delivered and is returned to us because the purchaser provided an incorrect address (we all have bad days), the purchaser will be responsible for the cost of shipping, in both directions, as well as a 20% restocking fee. This applies to orders that are being shipped to regular and third party recipients.

In the event that a package is lost or stolen because we were provided an incorrect address by the purchaser, we will not be able to issue refunds.

If an order cannot be delivered due to an incorrect address provided by the purchaser, we reserve the right to charge a $10 Address Correction Charge.  

Incorrectly ordered items (oops!)

If you ordered a product by mistake and would like a refund, the product must be returned, at purchaser’s expense, and must be in the same condition in which it was received. We are unable to issue credit for shipping in either direction. It is up to the purchaser to choose a return delivery method that best suits their needs and ensures that the product will not be damaged in transit.

In the event that you would like us to provide a call tag for your return, we can do so for a non-refundable $15 fee. All returns caused by customer error are subject to a 20% restocking fee. 

Orders with defective or incorrect merchandise (ouch!)

If you receive defective or incorrect merchandise, we will work quickly to correct the error. In the unfortunate event that you receive a product that is past its expiration date, we will issue credit for expenses incurred. Please note that we reserve the right to request a photo of the expired product and/or the product code from the original packaging prior to issuing credit. We will issue a call tag for the return of defective merchandise and upon receipt we will issue credit providing that it shows an expired date and/or other signs of defect not caused by weather-related issues. 

If you would like to exchange a product, we will ship the replacement merchandise at the shipping service level at which it was purchased. For instance, if the incorrect merchandise was shipped via UPS Ground, the replacement merchandise will also be shipped via UPS Ground. If you opted for Rush Delivery, we will refund the shipping cost.

Please note that we are unable to issue credit for any product that has been discarded prior to you obtaining a Return Authorization. 

Missing items

Yikes! We will fix it. In the event that an item is missing from your shipment, submit a claim (just send us an email) within 24 hours of physical receipt as determined by UPS. We will compare items ordered as well as the package weight and issue a store credit accordingly.

Orders lost in transit, space, or other mysterious places

Lost Candy OrdersIn the event that a product is lost in transit, we are only able to issue credit for up to $100 regardless of the dollar amount of the order. All additional requests for compensation must be filed with the original carrier. You can opt to purchase additional insurance.

Refused Orders

If an order is refused at time of delivery, without prior authorization, the purchaser will be responsible for a 20% restocking fee as well as the original shipping charge and any charges related to the product being returned to our warehouse. 

Shipping to APO Addresses

We always try to be of service to the Armed Forces, but we are unable to provide tracking, nor calculate time in transit, for orders shipping to APO or FPO addresses. We will do our best to provide pertinent shipping information but cannot take responsibility, nor issue credits or refunds, for products damaged in transport or not received.

Signatures, John Hancocks & Autographs

Please note that unless requested, we do not require a signature for receipt of UPS orders unless the order exceeds $250. In certain areas, UPS requires signatures and we are not able to reverse this decision.

If you would like Signature Release on your order, please make a note in the NOTES Section and we will contact you and help facilitate your request. 

Seasonal Orders

Because of their limited quantities and time-sensitive qualities (say that three times fast), all seasonal merchandise, perishable or non-perishable, is non-returnable. 

Special Orders

On special orders that constitute purchases above normal inventory levels, all sales are final.

If a product is not in stock and we specifically order it to fulfill a customer’s request, that constitutes a “special order.” This applies to merchandise ordered by phone or via the website, as well as any order that is shipped directly from the manufacturer. 

Timely Delivery

We cannot issue credit for orders not delivered on specific dates unless the order is shipped by an Expedited Shipping option. Orders shipped by Ground delivery fall within UPS delivery guidelines which vary from state to state. Although we do our best to get orders en route as soon as possible, we cannot guarantee same-day service on orders less than $69.95 or orders that qualify for Free Delivery unless you choose Rush Delivery service.

If you are in need of timely delivery, please contact us and we can help you choose an appropriate express delivery option.

Out-of-stock items (it sometimes happens)

In the event that a product you have ordered becomes unavailable, you will not be charged for that item.

If an item is out of stock and your order qualified for Free Shipping at check-out, we will ship the balance at no charge, because we’re nice like that. If you have chosen Expedited Shipping, the balance of your order will be shipped and you will not be charged for the portion of shipping that reflects the out-of-stock item.

 All orders are fulfilled on a first-come basis and we do not make promises, real or implied, as to availability of merchandise. As per out of stock items, unless specifically requested via email at support@candyfavorites.com or written in the Notes Section of your order, we are unable to notify you if an item is unavailable prior to shipping.

Please note that we do not backorder out-of-stock items and should you reorder, you will be responsible for the cost of shipping if your order does not qualify for our Free Shipping Promotion.

Product & image discrepancies

We strive to provide up-to-date product information, but there may be times when a manufacturer chooses to change a product’s formula or packaging without prior notification and this may not be reflected on our website.

If the product you received is correct by manufacturer’s specifications but different from the information or image listed on the site, it is the purchaser’s responsibility to return it at the discretion of management.

If you still have questions, just give us a call.
Sometimes it’s nice to have a person explain it.
We’re here.
 

After all, Candy is what we deliver but service is what we sell…
